The nVidia Graphics Card Size Patch Package provides two solutions to the
problem of NVidia Graphics Cards that use memory banking to access Video RAM.
This causes a problem in most Windows 95, 98, 98SE or ME Systems when a 512MB
Graphics Card reports only 256MB of Memory Mapped I/O Space when configured.
One Patch changes the Video Driver Code to properly support the smaller
directly accessible Video Memory of the Card. The second Patch modifies the
Graphics Card BIOS to report the full size of the Video RAM when
Another Patch is provided to Disable Video Option ROM Configuration. Some
BIOS and Graphics Card combinations set an Invalid Option ROM address that
confuses the Configurator.
A set of Interrupt Fixup Files (FIXINTR) are provided to handle loss of
Interrupts due to mishandling of End Of Interrupt (EOI) commands by the
NVidia Graphics Driver. Symptoms of this problem include Mouse Pointer
freezing, DISK Write Error BSODs and USB problems.
If the FIXINTR Files do not work on your System, use the FIXEOI.VXD File.
